Over the last few years, NoSQL database technology has experienced explosive growth and increased use by large enterprises for their mission critical applications. What’s remarkable is the variety of organisations and industries making the shift to this disruptive technology and reaping the reward.
Daniel Gutierrez recently caught up with Ravi Mayuram, SVP Products & Engineering at Couchbase, to discuss recent developments in the NoSQL database industry such as the relationship with Hadoop and Spark, container technology, security, and much more.
The very term revolution is defined as a dramatic and wide-reaching change in conditions, attitudes, or operations. What better way to describe the colossal change facing businesses today as industry after industry shifts to the digital economy? Businesses speak of the Digital Economy, but what tools and innovation is opening up new opportunities?
Couchbase Mobile 1.3 has reached general availability, featuring improvements to its Sync Gateway component that provides functionality such as authentication, authorization and data orchestration. Sync Gateway, along with the mobile-optimized Couchbase Lite NoSQL database, combine to formulate the Couchbase Mobile offering, a mobile development solution used with Couchbase Server.
New Query Workbench, plus advanced indexing, joins and i/o bring RDBMS-grade fit/finish to NoSQL camp.
Spark and NoSQL make a good combination, as they complement each other’s strengths. Organizations today are often picking NoSQL databases over relational databases to power large-scale Web, mobile and IoT applications that need schema flexibility, support for semi-structured data types like JSON, and horizontal scalability on commodity hardware. Today at the Spark Summit, Couchbase announced Spark Connector version 1.2.
“One trend that is going to continue to pick up steam in the coming year is the integration of operational NoSQL databases with analytical platforms like Spark. Web, IoT and mobile applications generate massive amounts of data that has very little intrinsic value for a business. To effectively derive real value from this raw data, it’s important for companies to pair their analytical platform that rapidly extracts insights from the data with their operational database that can quickly turn those insights into actions to improve customer experiences and operational efficiencies. Ultimately, shortening the time-to-insight and time-to-action is a competitive advantage that enables companies to find the true value hidden inside their data.” - Bob Wiederhold
Couchbase and other vendors in the crowded NoSQL database arena position their products as alternatives to the relational databases that dominate most data centers today. Their next-generation technologies can better handle the huge volumes of data and different data types that businesses are increasingly working with.
Data will be a big issue for IoT—not just because of size, but due to connectivity constraints. That’s good news for database vendors like Couchbase that have already been innovating for microservices, Big Data and mobile.
With so many choices today, matching database to need isn't getting any easier. Software company Nuance Communications opted for something else entirely, choosing Couchbase for handling speech and imaging apps.
Mobile apps are only as good as the database they rely on, so what do companies need to know?
Today, the database landscape continues to become increasingly complicated. The usual SQL suspects—SQL Server-Oracle-DB2-Postgres, et al.—aren't handling this new world on their own, and some say they can't. But the division between SQL and NoSQL is increasingly fuzzy, especially as database developers integrate the technologies together and add bits of one to the other.
There is no denying that mobile apps are no longer optional. Where options abound, however, are in the architectural, contextual and application life-cycle models to choose from. Building an app on top of a local database like Couchbase Lite, the first mobile NoSQL database, lets the app continue to operate offline.
Open-source NoSQL database purveyor Couchbase has raised $30m in a series-F funding round.
While they’re not nearly as quick to provide funding as they were a year ago, technology investors are apparently still willing to bet big when it comes to data management software. Sorenson Capital and half a dozen other private equity heavyweights this morning announced that they’ve led a $30 million round of financing into Couchbase Inc., one of the top players in the fast-growing NoSQL market.
Couchbase, an open-source NoSQL database, raised $30 million in Series F funding on Tuesday in its last round before an IPO.
The cloud, virtual offices, conferencing robots...technology has changed the face of . But which developments should be on your business’s radar for 2016?
Couchbase Server, similar to MongoDB and RethinkDB, is a document-oriented distributed database, but that description sells it a good deal short. Couchbase is what you get when a distributed key-value store and a document database join forces -- literally.
Global market research and consumer insight firm Nielsen chose NoSQL database Couchbase ahead of rival MongoDB for a document store because it was "more mature" from an administrative perspective.
David Maitland, General Manager, EMEA at Couchbase, looks at how companies can derive profit directly from big data.
There's no question that the tech industry is filled with high-paying jobs, but it's also an ever-changing market. One day a skill is hot and the next it's not.
William Hoang, a mobile developer advocate at Couchbase, has written a blog piece with code fragments that demonstrates migration of a Parse app to Couchbase Mobile, backed by Digital Ocean.
Most of us have apps on our phones and tablets that we can’t live without. Many come from hungry, up-and-coming startups which tend to be more innovative and fast-to-market than the big elephantine mega companies.
Parse developer advocate Fosco Marotto was as surprised as everyone else when he arrived at work the morning of Jan. 28 only to discover that Facebook was killing the popular Mobile Back-end-as-a-Service (MBaaS).
